Best of 2015
Alright, all you FOXY followers … it’s that time!
Time to wrap up 2015 in a nice pretty bow and take a peek around the corner at all the marvelous things that 2016 has in store for us.
What a fantastic reading year it’s been!
Kim’s top 2015 reads:
#10 – The Excess (series) by Angelica Chase: From the very first page, I knew I was in trouble. I didn’t foresee any of this & I’m so happy to be surprised! The entire serial makes it’s way onto my top 10.
#9 – Fighting Silence by Aly Martinez: Fabulous story. Love, love, love it!
#8 – The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan: I absolutely adored this fun, heart-felt and sexy story.
#7 – The Mistake by Elle Kennedy: I LOVED this book! By far the funniest of the year … heck, one of the funniest, ever.
#6 – Dirty Promises by Karina Halle: This is Karina Halle at her best! I am in awe of her sick, twisted, lovely dark & dirty mind.
#5 – Three, Two, One by JA Huss: J.A. Huss absolutely stunned me with this suspense filled, dark and dirty romance.
#4 – The Play by Karina Halle: This book was absolute magic.
#3 – The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C Cherry: Every once in awhile, a book will come along that resonates with your heart, maybe even your soul. This is one of those books for me.
#2 – The Night Horde SoCal (series) by Susan Fanetti: Have I mentioned before how brilliant I think Susan Fanetti is? There isn’t a single thing she’s written that I haven’t fallen a little in love with. Knife & Flesh is my favorite from this series! But I have to say the entire series makes it’s way to second place on my list.
#1 – Thicker Than Blood – by Madeline Sheehan & Claire C Riley (Beneath Blood & Bone was actually #10, but as a duo these books take top spot): Character driven drama … With a side of Zombie … Yummmm
Amy’s faves of 2015:
(In no particular order, because who can pick just one favorite?)
A Voice In The Wind by Francine Rivers
Don’t let the words “Christian fiction” hold you back from giving this book a try. This book has: manwhores, backstabbers, murderers, gladiators, schemers, aborters, forbidden romance, and the list goes on.
Dream & Dare by Susan Fanetti
This story was so EPIC!! It’s the love we all strive for with our mates. It’s a love story that spans 40 plus years.
Sustained by Emma Chase
My favorite Emma Chase book to date.
November 9 by Colleen Hoover
My favorite aspect of the story is how the book flowed so well together even though the story took place over a large time span. The story didn’t have any mundane lulls filled with everyday stuff. It held me captive from the opening scene until the very end.
Sempre Redemption by J.M. Darhower
Ms. Darhower writes the best mafia books I have ever read. The stories are so appealing that once you start you won’t want to put them down.
What’s up for 2016?
